    Sorry, but the OEM Windows XP license that came with your old laptop cannot be transferred or used on a different computer.  When your old laptop bit the dust, so did the computer manufacturer's OEM Windows XP license.  You'll need to purchase a new "Full Version" Windows XP license and CD for your newly acquired desktop computer.
